|Subject:||Amending the PennWATCH Act to Include Settlement Payments|
|In the near future, I, along with Rep. Oberlander and Rep. Delozier, plan to introduce a bill that would amend the PennWATCH Act to include information on each settlement paid to an individual, or to an employee of a Commonwealth agency, as a result of an action taken by an employee of a Commonwealth agency.
The PennWATCH website was created for user-friendly monitoring of all state departmental and agency budget expenditures and investments. However, the current website does not include information on settlements paid to an individual, or to an employee of a Commonwealth agency, as a result of an action taken by an employee of a Commonwealth agency.
Including this information will provide the residents of the Commonwealth with an easier way of monitoring how their taxpayer dollars are being spent, as well as providing greater transparency of taxpayer funded expenditures and investments.
Please join me in cosponsoring this bill.
Introduced as HB1803
